Backpacking Trip

Third w/e of Feb found us hiking a couple miles with the teens to a lovely site between two creeks and near some falls.  We were in the Laurel Falls area.

We arrived around 5 or 5:30p.

Unpacking the trailer

Beautiful large, mostly flat, trail.

Getting warm at the fire

Rushing creek

On one of the bridges so nicely provided for our convenience.

Marching along

Fire reflections

Next morning trying to get the fire going again.

OK, fire getting better - cooking breakfast.

This bridge had 3 sections

Finally we get a bonfire going!
